Javonte and his mother recall the day he was brought to the Emergency Department and Trauma Center at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. What started as a day of fun in his backyard swimming pool quickly became a life or death situation for Javonte.
Currently we treat more than 83,000 patients in our Emergency Department, and that number rises each year. We need to grow. The Condition is Critical.
About Our Expansion Plans
When it comes to emergency and trauma care, we are the very best at what we do, and our excellent survival rates prove that. But we’ve severely outgrown our space, tweaking and retrofitting as we go to accommodate every child brought here. We can’t do that anymore. With current growth projections, we simply won’t have the space we need to keep up with the demand.
Every donation from caring people like you make it possible for us to offer the very best medical specialists, cutting-edge technology, and family-friendly services without regard to the family’s ability to pay.
Naming opportunities are available for the capital campaign to build a new Emergency Department and Level 1 Trauma Center at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Artist renderings of the Emergency Department and Level 1 Trauma Center are available on Flickr.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson Knows The Condition is Critical
Arizona Coyotes player Oliver Ekman-Larsson is proud to be honorary chair of the Condition Critical campaign at Phoenix Children’s to build a new Emergency Department and Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. “The Condition is Critical. It’s going to take a team effort to build this new Emergency Department, and I’m proud to be part of it,” says Ekman-Larsson.
In An Emergency, Parents Know That Every Second Counts
We never want to turn a child away because we don’t have space. That’s why we’re fighting to be ready for 100,000 children — the number of patients expected to come through our Emergency Department and Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center by 2020.

Bubba Cox Shares His Experience
Cox recalls the day he brought his son to the Emergency Department and Trauma Center at Phoenix Children’s Hospital:
“As a parent, I pray that your child never comes here. But as a first responder, I pray that if your child needs to be treated in a hospital, that they’re treated here.”
